Panthers | Working to Get Under the Cap

The Charlotte Observer reports the Carolina Panthers are about $7.5 million above the salary cap. To get under the cap, the team is expected to cut players and restructure some contracts. DL Sean Gilbert, CB Doug Evans and CB Jimmy Hitchcock are all candidates to restructure their deals or be released. The team is likely to cut ties with Evans or Hitchcock, or possibly both. The Panthers should also get $1.1 million in cap relief from DE Jason Peter as the team will either release him or he'll retire.
